Books for a self-declared 12-yo non-reader
November 26, 2012 12:39 AM Subscribe
My step-son is 12. I challenged him to read one book in 2013 and his response was "John, I don't read. You know that. I read for school and class. But, otherwise, I don't read." I have started him on comic books as a primer but I am looking for a short fiction or non-fiction alternative. Also, maybe a writing club of some kind would be amenable but I don't want him to be Dudley's lone scout of the 826
model. He loves cooking, sci-fi, Adventure Time, Minecraft, architecture, and animals. Nothing with nightmares, please.
